Brinner! Or is it Dinfast? Whatever... I love breakfast for dinner. Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day... honestly, I could live off of egg and cheese bagel sandwiches. Just ask J! :)
This casserole was really good, flavorful and extremely easy to put together. Perfect for a weeknight meal. It has sausage, garlic, shallots, eggs, cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and my addition of sweet peppers and mushrooms.
1 lb Italian sausage
1/4 c shallots, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 sweet pepper, diced
3-4 button mushrooms, chopped
1/2 c sun-dried tomatoes (oil-packed), chopped
2 t dried parsley
5 large eggs
3 large egg yolks
1 c half n half
1 c whipping cream
2 c shredded mozzarella
1/2 t salt
Preheat oven to 375 and lightly grease a 13x9 baking dish.
Saute sausage in skillet for about 3 minutes. Add the shallots, garlic, pepper, mushrooms and cook for about 3 more minutes, until sausage is cooked through and veggies are tender.
Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes and 1 t parsley and cook one more minute. Spread sausage mixture in baking dish.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg yolks, half n half, whipping cream, 1 1/2 c mozzarella and salt. Pour over sausage.
Top with the remaining parsley and mozzarella. Bake for about 30 minutes, until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let sit for 5 minutes and serve hot.
